June 20, 2011
6:00-6:30am Firehiwot Negash lives with her grand mother, wake up early in the morning and washes her hands and face and puts on her school uniform. She takes her school bag and puts in what she wants for today’s exam and leaves home by greeting her grand mother.
6:30-7:20am Firehiwot joined her friends on the way to school and they all together arrived ECF School.
7:20-7:30am Flag Ceremony: the entire students and teachers gather together to sing songs and listen to the daily announcements before starting the school day. Teacher Mehari briefed about the Friday’s seedling plantation day and the need to take care each plantation. Firehiwot has planted two seedlings.
7:30-8:00am After the flag ceremony we went directly to our breakfast. Today’s breakfast was bread, which I like very much.
8:00-9:00am After breakfast while we were talking about the exams, the school announced to start the first period.
9:00-10:00am We went directly to our room six to take our first exam, English. Teacher Silenat was our examiner and we sat for the exam for about one hour. Some say the exam was heavy but it was easy for me since I studied well.
10:00-10:30am We gathered in the school compound to talk with friends about the previous exam and the upcoming ones.
10:30-11:30am Was the time for the second exam. We all went to our room and sat for the exam. Our examiner was Teacher Shimelis. This time the exam was very easy for all of us and we finished it in 30 minutes.
11:30-12:30pm During break time we all went to the playing field and played with friends until lunch time.
12:30-1:00pm I went to the dining hall with my friends and enjoyed the day’s menu which was Kinche.
1:00-2:00pm After lunch I went directly to library tried to look into the digestion system and blood system expecting that they may appear in the science exam. But unfortunately both were not in the exam.
2:00-3:00pm This was the time for science exam. Teacher Abebe was our examiner. The exam is not bad I may be wrong in the matching section otherwise I did most of the questions well.
3:00-4:00pm After the exam I went directly to the Theater Club as I am the member of this club. I am so proud that I have been selected for the first time to perform dram on the Families Day and so that I have to practice.
4:00-4:30pm We went out of the dram club with friend talking about our dram all the way to our home.
4:30-5:30pm Arrived home. My grand mother was preparing coffee and I helped her in arranging items and talked with her for a while during the coffee ceremony and then changed my uniform.
5:30-6:30pm I was called to the neighbor to do hair dressing, as I am good in it. I will be paid 4 Birr when doing and will give the money to my grand mother.
6:30-7:30pm After hair dressing I went to Tizita’s home, my friend, to study together mathematics for tomorrow’s examination. And there we studied maths together until 7:30pm.
7:30-8:00pm Went back to home and have dinner with my grand mother and then go directly for sleeping as the kerosene light was not good to read further.
